CounterPulse Co-Productions for Spring 2019:  CounterPulse partners with independent artist producers by offering access to space, resources, marketing, and production support at subsidized rates to bring full length work to our stage. This is more support than a rental-house, yet still allowing artist producers complete range to realize their vision of a full length work. Whether the work is a developed touring work or work that is developed specifically for this opportunity, our Co-Productions program get your work in front of a San Francisco audience at a high profile venue.  Budget and rates detailed in the PDF of their call:

Block Fest Artist Activators Residency, with stipend: Block Fest celebrates the Tenderloin and our block of Turk Street with free arts activities, community information, and discussion. Every Friday, from 3pm–5pm, Artist Activators host unique activities, workshops, or conversations for anyone who lives, works, or plays in the Tenderloin. From interactive performances and conversations to screen printing workshops and crochet jams, Block Fest has Tenderloin neighbors returning on a weekly basis. Artist Activators are the creative force for each Block Fest. Artist Activators are responsible for four consecutive Block Fests across one month.  The stipend for Artist Activators is $900, with an option to receive a $100 stipend for additional engagement work (writing on the blog and hosting an additional activity).

Gallery Installations for Fall Exhibitions 2018: This is an open call for gallery installations this fall at CounterPulse. The CounterPulse Gallery is a three-floor white wall space with many unique surfaces—ideal for installation as well as hanging 2D works. CounterPulse prioritizes artists who are thinking site-specifically and/or artworks that are experimental in content or form. Our fall season is exploring terrifying futures, non-binary and intergalactic bodies, digital divides, shifting landscapes, and planetary healing. We encourage artists to consider these themes as they apply. For specifications of the gallery area please CLICK HERE  and do consider the dimensions of the walls with the works you submit. The CounterPulse Gallery open call is run through ArtSpan Art-in-Nieghborhoods program. Link to apply:
